Non-tariff barriers like food safety standards are an important restriction to international trade. The costs of these measures are claimed to be disproportionately borne by developing countries but evidence supporting this claim remains scant. This paper estimates the impacts of maximum residue limit (MRL) standards of Azoxystrobin and Chlorpyrifos on Vietnamese rice and coffee exports. The impacts of MRL standards are on average negative, but heterogeneous across products.
